We are firm believers that you should edit the contents of your jewelry box on a seasonal basis. Most of us already assess our closets with the same frequency, which can be incredibly liberating—and pave the way for acquiring new items that feel more current, age appropriate, or better suited to your lifestyle. That’s the best part!
The problem with editing your jewelry box is that it can be especially hard to part with possessions that have sentimental and material value. For example, your jewelry collection may have 18k gold herringbone chains from the 1990s, or diamond brooches from the 1950s, and even if they’re not your style, you may not want to get rid of them. Add the emotional attachment to heirloom jewelry you might have inherited from a loved one and the task of editing becomes even more difficult.
Signed designer pieces should be sold on consignment.
Contact us if you think you have something of significant value—we have the resources to help you determine whether you should keep an item as an investment or sell it for top dollar through one of the prestigious auction houses. We also have an estate jewelry case at the studio that our regular local clients love to shop!
Gold is money, honey!
If it’s gold jewelry and you aren’t wearing it, we say scrap it. Lots of places will give you “cash for gold” and we do that, too. We’re in a position to get you the best prices for your unwanted gold pieces. Most of our clients use that cash as a credit towards a redesign project. It’s a way to be environmentally responsible—recycling gold contributes to the sustainability of our planet.
Precious heirlooms can be reimagined.
You see “old,” we see possibilities! A great aunt’s brooch can become a pendant. We can upcycle diamonds from your father’s wedding band and create a diamond bar necklace. Let us look at these pieces with fresh eyes—in our experience, if the jewel has sentimental meaning and there are quality gems we can upcycle, it’s worth reworking into a piece of jewelry you’ll actually wear.
We are happy to come to your home and assess the treasures that are languishing in your jewelry box, or feel free to bring them by our studio. We understand that it’s hard to part with some of these items. Or that you might not have the vision to see what they can become—leave that part to us and together we will make some modern jewelry magic happen! We look forward to being the first step in your jewelry collection’s new chapter!
